Turkey’s Sunday parliamentary election suggests that four major parties will enter the parliament. With more than 99 percent of the votes counted, the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) was well ahead of other parties with 41.18 percent, gaining the party 256 seats in the parliament, just below the threshold of 276 seats, the bare minimum to retain a simple majority in parliament. The results, therefore, suggest that a coalition government is awaiting Turkey.
According to the results, the Republican People’s Party (CHP) received 25.23 percent of the votes, the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) 16.48 percent, and the pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP) 13.19 percent of the votes. This was the first election that HDP entered the race as a unified party.
